Default Using Android Phone as a touch screen controller for M.O.J.O.?

Is there an app that would allow you to use your preexisting Android smartphone/tablet as a touch screen controller for the M.O.J.O console?

I am looking for something that would allow full pinch/pull/tap/swipe gesture functionality.

During my search I came across a great number of apps that turn your Android/iPhone device into a wireless remote control/mouse to control your TV or computer, but nothing that would allow you to use one Android device's touchscreen to control another Android device (M.O.J.O. in this instance).

Please let me know if you have any leads.

The problem is that if you do not stream the picture back to the phone it can be difficult to know where you are placing your finger.

With my mapper you can stream touches or use parts of the of the phone touchscreen as different kinds of controllers that you can stream but, so far, I have not written multitouch to multiouch streaming.

If this is an scenario useful for some people I would add it.

Yes I think there would be a strong demand for this type of function as the number of devices increase per person. Sending the image back to the phone would be difficult and mapping it to known keys seems like the easier solution. If its possible, I would like to try your alpha.

This is all on the play store for some days.

Remote connection to Android or PC streaming is available for months. The new thing is the multitouch to multitouch simulation.
